Research seminar: A review of the provision of smoking cessation education within UK midwifery school curricula

The aim of this study was to assess the current state of smoking cessation teaching that is taking part in UK midwifery schools and to ascertain what the perceived barriers to teaching this topic are.

From the literature reviewed it is apparent that the importance of health professionals supporting patients to stop smoking is widely acknowledged. However smoking cessation education provision is inconsistent. There are currently no studies available that have looked at smoking cessation education in midwifery curriculums in the UK.

This was a cross sectional study with a comparative, descriptive design.  An adapted questionnaire was used to examine midwifery schools smoking cessation education provision.

All universities that offered a midwifery undergraduate course in the UK were approached. The questionnaire was distributed via email to participants, in conjunction with a participant information sheet. In total 29 respondents were recruited into this study (response rate 55%).  Cross tabulation of descriptive statistics was used to analyse the data.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
